I wnlBlowam readerscf a particular danger related to playing vi<Jeo 
garnes in the arcades — that of the pick- pooket. 
Recently I had irty wallel sio^n while in a local arcade, and this 

opened rny eyes lo how easy 11 is for the pick-pocket. Arcades are 
u&^aily dimly irt and can be crowcfed, a gamer may ofien Imd d amall 
crowd sunoundmg him With peoplp rQiiinually pushing by and the 
engrossing distracBion of the gamij. rt"s so easy tat the pick-pocket, 

I would advise anyone a*io plays arcade machines, erther at 
weeke-nds oron holiday, NOT ttJeflviylarBs amounts of money and 
NOT to place ttieir wallet m .i bsck trousar pocket A wallet Is much 
safer In a front pocket. 

MflQfliines like 2ZAP'. tend lo show some of the atlfftciigns of 
playing arcade machines {\ am jkiI sayrnB you slioutd be blamed for

But people DO Ifke coin-op games, arvt the earlier point about being 
able to play the'f conversions at home, iswei'm^^e ^whas'$ wrong 
v/lth th&n}'> M LInkteter from Harllepool. CJeveiand. reckoirs thef 
ifiesedaya^ . p 

. . , sDftMvare is becomfng more and more over-commercjal, BJid tihe 
software being produced is a load o( CRAP. What you are buying are 
overphoed pretty graphics and catchy tuna faoadea disguising very 
weak and jnongtnal skeletons ol games underneaih. These so-celled 

'officlal^v licensed Arcade conversions' area pain in theneck. 

tr the conversions Themselves were up To The ;ame standard as 
their arcade counterpans 11 mighTnoi be so bacf, but whaT do you geT'' 
A hurned representation' at a game witJi Bxcepiianfllly good 



graphics but very poor gameplay. An example of this is Commando. 

I'm not blaming (he abiual people who are given iheT^skol convert- 
ing Iheae gam^s, Titi b'dmhng the whole indusfry. Why f^hould we be 
5Ub|ec(ea to aconsia"! I'uw olouer-hypyd oldarcadeaames, when

and thai the ^tra cost involved tn pijfchas'ng a hcp^nf^ i:ou!d wslfbe 
spent on development costs for a taiented programing! ShBi*n Rus- 
sell agrees with Unhlater's point 

There are many software houses who continually purchase tie-ins 

and conversions without thinking of the quality of past releases. The 
only way to make software houses irripTova the standard af releases 
IS to stop buying the jijnk, and to give more support To anginal 
sofCwar>afrckm people such as Sensible Software, And raw Braytiiook, 
JefT Minter, etc.

And Richard Leadbetler js in complete accord wi^^^is sentiment

The arcades arS? fulF of good ideas, poinT rak^n Rit why not let

Slick prasentation is usually superfluous - but not in this 
case. Here, the atmosphere is enhanced, almost generated 
by the cosmetics - glorious, colourful and distircthy 'macho' 
graphics comolememted by near-perfecl sound, flspecially the 
ricochelof bullets, the metallic dang of a bullBt hittrng a locked 
door, and the subtle foot^lep^-Thelact that gunfire is irulaible 
adds to tbe overall feel -it'sfaf more appropriate than being 
able \<t 5e« butiets moving slowly towards you. Eagles f^&sT is

you are left stranded in the grid, 
wlh no obviojs means of 
escape. , - 



Enjoyablfr, chal- 
tengirbg and 

addictive - that's 

Sun Star. The 

pTQblem i5 that 
the feeling doesn't last very 
long -mainly because there's 
not enough ^-arlety. The 3D 
affect is ifery Qood indeed, ernl

loauing a green energy cry^^al in 
their wake. The crystal then moves 
tirou-nd on its own and is av^idbl^ 




Sun Star is an 
unusual gsnve to 
play. being a 

Strange blend of 

Beamnder and Z. 
The graphics are gdc^d, but 
while the auttior has gone to 
great lengths to recreate the 
consci view from the cockpit, 
you mevitabiy end up playing 
by the two small scanner 
acreerts alone^ The action can 

gat quite hectic at limes -due 

in part to the dLsorientatlng 
control method, wh^ch takes a 
little while to get used to. A 
smaller price lag might have 
been m orde*. especially when 
you consider the lack of vari- 
ety. 1 can't see Sun Sr^r provid-

Sun Star is fairly 

oriqiral, but stm- 
ple and rather 
t^dkous with rt. 
The main display 
can get very confusing, and 
die scanner at tbe bottom of 
the screen does little to help. I 
didn't find it remotely enjoy 
atile to play, and tbere was 
nothing about it to draw me 
back. M times It felt as if I 
wasn't getting anywhere, and 
tl>e whole thing struck me as 
being total ty pointless- Basic-

CRUCIAlACOMPILA 



The appearance of compilations during the Christmas period is as Iraditional as tl^e Festive Season itself. A 
coHoction of ageing, or relatively obscure software, which represents a bargarn for most consumers. But 
considering the quality o* ths majority of recent softv^are, rt wq\i\<$ surely be more sensible for software houses 
to release a compilation consisting oJ four or five average -to- good programs for the same price as a single, 
uninspiring title? \n a potentiatly similar vftirt: Imagine put Mikie on their KonamI Coin-Op Hits compilation, 

Mikro- Gen did the same with Battle of the Planets and theirClas5rcGolfection,Dur6ll are releasing Turbo Esprit 
on their Big Four compilation, and Elite are putting Duel onto the Hit Pack. What do these titles have in- common? 
This is the first time they have s«en the light of day - and through a compilation. This does tend to suggest that 
these games are below full-price standard, but even so, \Vs an attractive addition. Who knows? We may yet see 
the 64 version of Ocean's Street Hawk , . - on a compilation. 

Anyway, here is a round-up of compilations past and present - all of which are still available. Hopefully, thts 
will prove an adequate source of reference . . .

This ts a pretty

The firal thing 
that struck me 
was thai It's

hoe Cyborg splashed alJ ovar

The game Uselt is pretty a^er- 
age: none of the three asct^ons 
managi-ng to inspire to any 
-great extent. The shool^en^ up 
Stage is poor, having N^rid 

-graphics and arri annoying con- 
trol ^yslem. Being wary of the 
'Mega Speed' in the lunn&l ^f 
■death rs mildly entertaining 
and jjy lar the best pari of the 
pragfam. The final maie-type 
section IS rather uninteresting 
and possrbly impossible to 
G^mplele: the mBtructkons tell 
you to blast the robots with 
your laear. This la rather 
difficult as you don't have one, 
and avQiidin-g the robots Is I'efy 
drfticull. The ternn 'budget' 

should not mean that a game 
Is quick fy thrown together and

Stricken by an anomalous hyperspatial jump^ parts of the great liner Arcadia crashed spec- 
taoutarly onto the barran surface 0I the strange plandt. Amid the crackling fires a few sur- 
v^vore stood ngitifed by shock, yel were still capable of surpriae at the sight of a lone man 
striding unscathed from the hottest part of the conflagration. 

His uniform tag sard ha was Cross, on© of the Arcadia's officers. Wielding authorit/ coldly, 
he ordered the survivors to find a means of getting away from the wreck, A passenger 
protested; in the event of an accident, ttiey were supposed to remain close to the liner. Cross 
pointed at the sky . - .
